In case you missed them.....
« on: July 11, 2012, 10:10:50 AM »
Finished (kind of) modern trooper:









WIP of Hamlet B:

In the war-torn darkness of the future, there is only Grymn.

Deep Space Nine: Officially not as good as Stargate.

If you field an overwhelming force against a paltry number of defenders, whatever you do, make sure the defenders are not English!

Didn't miss them, just spent too much time frothing to post

I still think the Recon should have been called Sneaky Git and the Engineer should have been called Jelly Bopper :D

V nice work Mr White

Much :froth:

Are the Assault and Support variants going to be made off the same body as well?

These are very nice - looking forward to seeing how these and the others progress.

The more I see the miniatures grouped together (here, on FB) the more Hamlet looks like part of the spec ops team.

I'm not sure Mike will appreciate having the same body as Freak... those jeans with the seat removed and leather chaps are a very individual look  :whistle:

They're beautiful, but I'm a little confused.

These are, presumably, two separate releases.  They come, then, with an identical body/legs but different head/backpack/arms options?  Or is the head fixed the body?  What options will come with each choice?

And why re-use an identical body/legs?  Could a little re-sculpting not have been done just to make them look a smidgen different below the neck?

Correct.

Correct.

Or is the head fixed the body?   

Nope. As you said, the head is separate.

What options will come with each choice?

The guns pictured above. Hassle will come with the MP5SD and the L96, while Bergil will come with the G36c and P90.

And why re-use an identical body/legs?   

Because. Just because.

Could a little re-sculpting not have been done just to make them look a smidgen different below the neck?

It could, but I was only going to do two weapon choices for this set of legs in the first place and just got carried away and made four instead.

There are going to be at least seven more bodies before I'm finished and each one will have two weapon options and a unique head (which will be able to fit on all of the bodies). I really think that's enough for people to make a lot of different troopers, don't you? - Let alone give Sally a massive headache when it comes to sorting the stock drawers out to get them in the shop.

This makes me happy.  And more likely to buy the first two when I know they won't be looking all synchronized for long.  I can always convert them myself as long as it will just be the occasional one.
